Lester gets 1st win with Cubs in 1-0 victory over Brewers
CHICAGO (AP) -- Jon Lester pitched seven scoreless innings for his first victory with Chicago and Addison Russell hit his first career home run in the Cubs' 1-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 on Friday. Lester (1-2) allowed just three hits, struck out four and walked one in his best outing of the season. The left-hander received a standing ovation when he lifted in the top of the eighth inning. Cubs manager Joe Maddon decided to go with reliever Pedro Strop to face switch-hitter Elian Herrera. Strop pitched a perfect eighth inning and Hector Rondon pitched the ninth for his fifth save in six chances.
